    Is Amazon's new Kindle e-book lending program worth the price of a $79 annual Amazon Prime membership? Now you can check it out for yourself; the list of eligible books is posted on Amazon's Web site.
    There are currently 5,377 Kindle e-books available to Prime members. The wholesale jerseys top five books include For Time and Eternity (Sister Wife) by Allison Pittman, the Hunger Games trilogy from Suzanne Collins, and Fuse of Armageddon by Sigmund Brouwer and Hank Hanegraaff. There are also some classics like Dracula, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Treasure Island and Little Women, as well as more recent hits like Water for Elephants.
    The number-one book on Amazon, Walter Isaacson's biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, is not on the list, nor is John Grisham's The Litigators.
    The list was first noted by CNET, which noticed a Publishers Lunch tweet cheap mlb jerseys from Friday. That tweet said there were only 2,700 Prime lending options and, indeed, the number listed under "Kindle Edition" currently says 2,985, but clicking through gives you 5,377 options.
    As one commentor noted, however, Amazon's full list only goes up to 1,200. For the full 5,377 books you have to drill down by category on the left-hand bar.
    When Amazon announced its e-book lending library on Wednesday, the company nfl jerseys cheap said customers would be able to choose from "thousands" of books. jerseys wholesaleThe program is available to Amazon Prime members with a Kindle device; it won't work for those with Kindle apps on iOS or Android devices or the PC, for example. Customers can only borrow one free e-book per month, but there's no due date.
    The selection of e-books, however, is causing some controversy. According to the Wall yotoforum Street Journal, the six largest U.S. publishers are not participating due to concern over future sales, but the LA Times points out that some publishers who opted out were surprised to see their books on the lending list anyway. The Times said Amazon is getting around this because it bought the books at wholesale, meaning it can sell the titles for any price. Ideally, Amazon would sell it for the publisher's set price, but it's not restricted to those prices.
    In its press release, Amazon said "for the vast majority of titles, Amazon has reached agreement cheap jerseys with publishers to include titles for a fixed fee. In some cases, Amazon is purchasing a title each time it is borrowed by a reader under standard wholesale terms as a no-risk trial to demonstrate to publishers the incremental growth and revenue opportunity that this new service presents."
